I said “Goodnight. I love you SOOOOOOOOOO much.” She replied, “I  LOVE YOU SO BIG, MAMA.” I said, “You love me so big?” She replied, “Like a kite.” The moments that define her are small; it’s their effect that’s enormous.

I will let the following photos speak for themselves- but lets just say this years trip to the pumpkin patch was a small disaster. Let me set the scene for you:  80 degrees with 1 child in a wool sweater and the other with no shoes or socks, no water or snacks, a few wrong Read more ..

I must have ordered her out of  a some sort of a girl catalogue. Girl, check. Loves pink, check. Begs to go to Ballet Class, check. Tu-tu’s, princess obsessed, cupcake loving, maternal- check, check, and check. A little emotionally unstable, totally challenging, calls em’ like she see’s em’- yep that too. Sassy. Frilly.

I was just telling a friend today how this summer feels like it never happened. I do my best to remain present in every situation but I have failed miserably at that, at times.

Her Godmother invited us to see Mary Poppins, and though I was nervous to see how Sunny would react to such a BIG SHOW in a SMALL theatre with ADULTS who paid GOOD money for a BIG show, she did AWESOME. She loved the show! Totally “got” the Read more ..

I love both of my children equally. It should be said that for as much as I adore these little  monsters creatures Matt has particularly benefited from the birth of our daughter. Last night I witnessed Sunshine’s first panic attack. Matt has been at work all week. The last time I physically saw him was Read more ..
